McDonald's asked to remove Christmas greeting

WRAL

Religious McDonald's Sign Draws Attention In Raleigh
Woman Asks Restaurant To Remove Sign, 'Jesus Is The Reason For The Season'
The sign at McDonald's on the corner of Falls of Neuse and Spring Forest Road reads: "Merry Christmas, Jesus is the Reason for the Season." It is a holiday message that Amanda Alpert thinks comes on a little too strongly.

"It offends me because it specifically talks about Jesus, Merry Christmas. It doesn't give credit to anyone else," Alpert said.
"I care because I'm Jewish, and the reason for the season is upsetting to me," Alpert said.


McDonald's managers say the sign has been good for business. They say church groups have stopped by to eat, and some people who usually don't eat food from McDonald's have stopped by because of the sign. The store's owner did not return WRAL's calls.

All I have to say is... grow up!

From one Jew to another, all I have to say to Ms. Alpert is:

SHUT THE HELL UP AND GO PLAY DREIDEL! I'M DOING THAT, YOU SHOULD TOO!

Hope that helps. :)

I am not a huge fan of the McDonalds, but I have to applaud them for their standing tall on this one.

I just went to the Arby's at River and Beltline (if you are not in the Eugene/Springfield area, just nod along), and was pleased to see it decked out for CHRISTMAS.

They not only have garland and stuff up, but have a manger scene painted on the windows, complete with a baby Jesus and the words "Wise men still seek Him." And their background music was all real Christmas carols. Not "holiday music" but songs about Christmas and Christ.

I suggest that if you are in that area and want some fast food, avoid the McDonald's across the street and check out the Arby's.

Oh, and I'd like to remind Ms. Alpert that Jesus was a Jew and rabbi...

And just like everything else in this free country - if you don't like it, don't look!

Christmas was originally a pagan holiday anyway so what's the problem?
